Sunday’s Honda Classic victory marked Rickie Fowler’s first tour victory of the year and fourth PGA victory of his career. It was Fowler’s first victory since Sept. 2015 when he won the Deutsche Bank Championship by one stroke over Henrik Stenson. Fowler went into Sunday’s final round with a four-stroke lead that he maintained even while shooting a 71 on the final day. The victory moves Fowler into 10th place of the Fed-Ex Cup standings and has him up to ninth in the world rankings.

 

Morgan Hoffmann

After an abysmal finish in the Genesis Open, Morgan Hoffmann bounced back in a big way. Hoffmann recorded a 68 in the final round of the Honda Classic to secure a tie for second place. The second place finish is Hoffmann’s best career finish on the PGA tour and first top 10 finish since he tied for third at the John Deere Classic in August.
